Over years WordPress has changed drastically. First it was developed with only blogging in mind. It was a boon for bloggers. But this scene has changed positively and now as we all know WordPress can build any kind of website with the unlimited themes designed for it. There are lot of themes for Corporate, business, industrial, photography, portfolio, etc types of websites. But what if you get all these types of websites using only one WordPress theme? Yes, that is possible! While searching multipurpose themes for WordPress I found one theme named “SKT White” by SKTThemes. I found this theme interesting and hence sharing my experience with it.
This theme looks like a professional corporate, business and portfolio website theme. It provides a homepage slider to feature important content in a cool look on front page. This theme provides you with the option to create 25+ separate sections on front page. This will help you feature services, gallery, testimonials, etc in short on front page. Gallery images have lightbox effect. Then it has two page layouts namely page with sidebar and fullwidth page. So design wise I will give it full rating.(Compared to other free themes.)

Page Load Speed:
Page load speed for website may differ with the content included in it. The PageSpeed score depends on the demo page content, caching of the page, number of HTTP requests, Image sizes and lot many other parameters. I checked the Google PageSpeed of SKT White demo on Mobile and Desktop mode. The Performance is not impressive on both devices. To overcome this, caching plugin can be used in it named W3 Total Cache and WP Cache.
Search Engine Optimization:
Some basic search engine optimization is done.
Post Title on Blog Archive is in <H2> tag
On Single Post, the title is in <H1> tag
It is advised to use Yoast SEO WordPress plugin for even better SEO for the site.
